Babcock awarded fleet management contract

Babcock International Group has been awarded a critical contract with London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (LFEPA) to manage and maintain their fleet of vehicles and equipment over an 18-month interim period during which LFEPA will be running a full competition for the services.

The contract has been entered into following the recent deterioration of LFEPA’s arrangements with its existing supplier.

The contract sees Babcock supporting the maintenance of LFEPA’s fleet of over 500 vehicles and 50,000 pieces of equipment, located across its 113 stations. The service will be managed from Babcock’s London Control Centre, where the dedicated team will provide 24/7 support.

In securing this opportunity, Babcock is looking to provide a number of key benefits to the Authority through using ALCAMiE, its asset management tool.

This successful approach has consistently delivered within the emergency services sector to customers that include the Metropolitan Police Service’s operational fleet and the Government’s New Dimension fleet, where Babcock has helped increase resilience, reduced costs, introduced innovation and helped customers maintain critical frontline focus.

Paul Wilkins, Babcock’s director of emergency services business, said: “Babcock recognises the critical support that LFEPA requires for this interim period to ensure continuity of a critical public service whilst they carry out the procurement process for a new full term contract.

“We will not only seek to raise service levels for the Authority, but through our partnering approach, make every endeavour to achieve efficiencies and introduce best practice for our customer.”
